Hello. I posted this a previous time. But it seems like some posts disappeared a while ago. Anyways, here is my attempt on the Sandman. Sorry for the sloppy playing :lol: Only two tracks.

Re: RK II V1 vs RK II V2

So I am digging up this ancient thread! :D I had a RK I, but I sold it because it was a very early one and strange behaving sometimes. It sounded great thou. I have been thinking about RK II, but apart from the clean channels: Is the build and reliability on RK II that much better than RK I ? I read...

Mark III blue or Red stripe like Mark V Extreme mode?

Hey. Been thinking about getting a Mark III blue or red Simul, or maybe a Mark V, even a MK V 25. I stumbled over this video some time ago. That sound is friggin insane!! And a good player too! So, would a Mark III blue stripe be in the same territory ? Or should I get a Mark V or MK V25? http://you...

Re: Mark IIC+ vs Mark V

Another twist to this: Isn't one of the key part of the sound of the IIC+ the "Volume 1" control? I have never tried a IIC+, but I have owned a Quad pre for some years now, and I've tried a Mark V with the IIC+ mode. I was really disappointed with the mark V. So, I little theory: To recreate the mor...

Re: Straight question:What's the optimal rating for power tu

6l6: 26 - 28 and El34: 38 ? mA ? For each single tube I guess?

I have been buying TAD 6L6GC's and Tung Sol EL34B's for a while from eBay. They sound great but sometimes the volume just drops and comes back..

Re: Straight question:What's the optimal rating for power tu

Thanks MarkIII ! Well, somewhere in the middle between hot good sound and cold long longelivity. Buying 4x6l6+2xEL34 frequently will become expensive..


But: I was really looking for numbers, bias values, so I can ask specifically at a tube seller :D

Straight question:What's the optimal rating for power tubes?

Tried to search here for some direct answers, but just found a lot things depending on matter of taste or technical disagreements about cold or hot and so on... I want to use other tubes than Mesa, but it would be nice to know to best ratings for 6L6s and EL34s. Just looking for longlivety and the b...

Re: Quad Guitar Preamp: Can I get Metallica/Lamb of God Soun

But didn't they also use Furman EQ's in front and possibly after. Also didn't they slave the IIC's into Marshall head's power sections? So to really get that sound would take quite a bit but I find the character of the sound you can definitely get from the preamp alone and I'd rather keep it simple...

Re: Quad Guitar Preamp: Can I get Metallica/Lamb of God Soun

I am very satisified indeed with my Quad. There is as always a steep learning curve, but I can definitely get the 'Tallica sound from it! Not to get off the tread; According to the now legendary recording notes form F.Rasmussen from MOP and AJFA sessions, the settings seems to be a bit different fro...

Re: Road King II - Very low volume output

I have a Road King I, and I also use a step down transformer. Suddenly some of the channels have a very long "dead spot" on their Master knobs before they get to normal volume. I almost have to turn to 9 o'clock before anything happens... Also I find the Presence knobs to be a bit uneven, and extrem...
